J. E Burgher, Publisher. ue are Here to Help Clay City, the Surrounding Country and Ourselves. - PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY VOL. XXVII. " CLAY CITY, KY., THURSDAY, SEPTEMJ1E11 2), W?2 NO. W. THE CLAY CITY MARKET DAY Saturday a Busy One Saturday was one of the busi t market days experienced since they were launched last Febru ary. More than one hundred head of cattle were on the mar ket and they sold readily and well. Among the cattle sales we caught the following: ().. K. Tutt 1(1 head of mixed attle to Henry Wiseman and L. S. Hamilton at 1J cents. Shelt McKinney to Joe Klkin 2t cattle one and two years old at I to G$ cents. Edwin and W. C. Rose to Geo. 11. Williams 2t one and two year old rteers at from i) to 5J cents A number of horses changed hand at the prevailing low prices. A number of mule colts were on hand, but few sellers were willing to take the low prices of. t'ered, $30 and 13 each. All the watermelons on the market were sold. The merchants, garages, bank and uewspiper report a good day for business. - Stock pens are badly needed to properly promote the stock sales, as persous having only a few head of hogs or cattle do not care to hold them on the streets to wait for buyers. This accommo dation should be supplied at once by persous interested in the sue cess of market day. The usual large crowd was present. Wright Gets Contract Charlie Wright was given con tract by the County Board of Ed ucation for the building of the two room school house at Vaughn's Mill at 11122, this be ing the lowest bid offered.

Returning to One Room Schools Faye'te county has fully tried out the consolidated school the ory, and found Itself in debt more than 1100,000 after the trial. It has quit the transportation busi ness and contrives to return to the walk-to-school plan and one room schools. It seems that every move to Improve the schools since the editor was a boy, has been backwards. At least the schools of today are"uot as effi cient as they were thirty yeais ago, when an ordinary child did learn more in the then five months term, than they do now in the much longer terms.
